Hello friends! Thought I'd pop on here quick to show you a completed page in my art journal. I'm not sure how you all journal (if you don't, you should! It really helps wake up the mojo!) but I usually have 2-3-4 pages on the go at one time, and I'm not even sure any are truly finished ever! Sometimes it's easier to just work on a page I've already got started than stare at a blank page wondering where to start. So there's always a few pages to help kickstart my creativity. I also use the journal to try out ideas I see online somewhere to try it out myself before jumping onto a larger canvas or *good* paper.... this entry was one of those type things. I watched this AWESOME video of a "Splash Eye" It was a really great watercolour and ink type drawing/painting that I HAD to give a try! So, here is my attempt:
So, I tried to follow along and do the same as what PeeGeeArts has done, she used a mixture of pen and ink I believe (the video is done on time lapse and she doesn't always show what she is using) but i recoqnie the india ink jars. I used pencil to draw the eye, then I used my H2O's as it's the closest thing to water colour I have right now, plus I love the sparkle! and of course I used pens to outline and draw in the lines of the eye and drip marks. Then, I just started to doodle in that title, I LOVE typography and letters and the art you can make just using them!
OK, that's all for today, I'll be back soon with more journal entries and mixed media fun!!
